Iggy Azalea catapulted to #1 on YouTube following the release of “Sally Walker” and today, she has revealed the epic video for “Started,” which will surely follow. The four-time GRAMMY-nominated and multi-platinum artist endured 10-outfit changes, and plays out a sordid tale of money and unhappily-ever-after, with guest appearances from Trixie Mattel as well as Miss Vanjie. The stunning video was directed by frequent collaborator and award-winning Colin Tilley.
This song follows her single “Sally Walker,” which peaked at #3 on the U.S. iTunes chart, making it her fourth time in the Top 5. That video continues to garner views daily and has since surpassed 47M since its release. Both songs are featured on her greatly anticipated forthcoming album, In My Defense.
Azalea has a proven track record of success. Since the release of her debut album The New Classic, Azalea has been fixture on the music charts. That album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Rap Chart –and was followed by a succession of commercial and critically-acclaimed hits including: “Fancy” with Charlie XCX, “Black Widow” with Rita Ora, and “Problem” with Ariana Grande. Azalea has made history multiple times including becoming the first artist (male or female) since the Beatles to rank at #1 and #2 simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 hits.
